Hi I'm Charlotte

I'm a PE teacher in training, a chocolate addict, a jazz lover, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a southern belle in Georgia. I grew up in Texas but was lucky enough to land in Georgia after college. Since moving here in 2005, I decided to return to school for a masters in Kinesiology. My dream job is to teach PE at the elementary level after graduation. I love my family. I'm lucky to have 5 siblings I call friends. We are all over the US so we keep in touch through facebook or the phone. I'm the oldest and constantly amazed by my siblings. Basically they are the coolest. I'm me. I'm NOT a surfer with one arm, a scientist with awards and books on my shelves, a winner from "America's next top model", or TIME's "Person of the Year". I'm the girl in class studying hard to get an A. I'm the stranger at the grocery store using coupons to make every penny count. I'm the girl watching a movie so funny that I'm crying from laughing so hard. I'm the friend that's excited to hear from a long-lost friend. I'm the sister that is willing to cry with you. I'm the daughter that longs to be home for the holidays. I'm the girl that sometimes wants to curl up with a mug of hot cocoa and read a good book. I'm the friend that wants to go camping when the weather gets cool. In some way or another, I'm like you.

Why I am a Mormon

Everyone has a conversion story. Mine was during my young teenage years. I remember going into the garage one Sunday and just thinking. My parents were both Mormon and had taught me many beliefs of the faith. I had to determine on my own what I believed and how I felt. I prayed off and on for most of the afternoon. Nothing miraculous happened, but a sense of peace came to me. I came in from the garage determined to always have that peace with me, to find the path right for me and allow God to lead my life. Years have passed from that afternoon of prayer. I've felt a certain peace in many places. I've felt it as I've attended worship services of other faiths, weddings of friends and family, and while reading religious books. However, the most peace and comfort has come to me as I've worshiped in the temple, combined study of the Bible with the Book of Mormon, and listened to our modern day prophet, Thomas S. Monson.

How I live my faith

Being christian is not only for Sunday - it is a daily process. Each day is a new day to try my best.
